MPlayerX is not a native macOS application. However, many users find useful the additional functionality it provides. However, when it comes time to remove it, things may get tricky. The application creates service and support files in several locations on the Mac that may be left there even after the main app has been removed from the device. To make sure that MPlayerX has been deleted completely follow the steps outlined below.
- Stop the Application
The first step is to make sure that MPlayerX and all of its processes are stopped. For this, we will need to open Activity Monitor. You can find this helpful tool in the Launchpad's Utilities folder. Once Activity Monitor is running, select 'All Processes' from the corresponding drop-down menu. Then locate all processes related to MPlayerX, select them, and click on the 'Quit Process' icon. If that doesn't work, try closing the processes via 'Force Quit.'
